Thanks, Tony!

I heard them on 20M or 17M with a solid 57 signal and the only stations they replied to seemed to be from Europe.

Dozens of US stations called for more than 45 Minutes then most US stations just seemed to give up.

Did not need, but worked a bandfill on 12 CW for the fun of it.

Instant on line confirmation. Shocked

Getting off to a great start here on the left coast!   Got them on 20 SSB and RTTY on their first day.  Now looking for a CW contact and band fills.

I had tried earlier in the afternoon on 30 but no dice.

Super easy for me on 40. Well, except for all the lids and kc cops on top of XT2TT... but XT2TT was louder than all of them, the path was that good!

Is it just me, or do the African and Middle East DXpeditions draw an extra large contingent of lids and frequency cops?

Congrats.  Is this an ATNO for you?

Ditto on the great start here in CO.  I also got him on 20m SSB and RTTY.  This is an ATNO for me.  SSB was easy compared to RTTY.  I almost lost the RTTY contact as someone was deliberately transmitting on my transmitting frequency after he came back to my call sign.  I sent two replies and he still couldn't get it.  Finally the op got really upset at the QRMer and sent my call a total of nine times on one transmission (see below).  I saw the exact same thing happened to many others as well so I'm not alone.  I'm grateful that he stuck with me.  I'm amazed at the level of deliberate QRM observed these days.

Yes, this was an ATNO for me.,I missed the JA operation last year and the EU/American team that was there 4-5 years ago.  The only remaining African countries I need are Western Sahara and Eritrea.

He has a strong signal on 10 meters right now.  He is working Europe, South America and North America all at the same time and doing a great job handling the pileup. I haven't heard any stations from the Midwest or West Coast but who knows. His signal has built up considerably since I started listening about an hour ago when I could barely copy him. There is a lot of QSB on the band. Anyway, I just snagged him and I hope some of you guys put him in the log. Oh, he is on 28.030.06 and I was transmitting on 28.033.93


73 es GL to all,


Chris/NU1O

PS He just worked a station in Iowa.

Got them on 12 meters a bit before noon.  It was a mad house last night and such QRM.
Some helpful lad ran a slow scan on the op's listening frequency which resulted in several
words of praise from those trying to work the DX.  One dude kept keying a carrier about once
a second.  Early today it was still a mad house so I went grocery shopping.  Things had
neared normal and a few calls got the SSB contact.  By the time I checked the online log
the QSO was already there.  WOW maybe such logging will reduce the number of dupes.
Also it is neat that they are closer to NA than most recent african nations on expeditions.
Great op's   TNX

Traffic cops  replace  "Split dumb ass" with  "Split   5-10 up"   More pleasant and effective!!!

Knowing that propagation to NA will be a killer on 15m I was anxiously waiting for them to show up on this band.  They didn't disappoint when they went QRV on 15m SSB Grin

They also had a decent signal on 12m SSB although there was some QSB.  Three calls and they were in the log Grin

I did try 10m CW but no joy.  The EU spotters were reporting 10 over S9.

9U4U has a booming signal on 17m right now and I'm hoping that XT2TT would go QRV on this magic band.

Well today I got them on 10M CW and 15M SSB.  The Op on SSB was now calling for stations outside Europe, that was what made it possible.    In a few weeks with Clipperton the shoe is going to be on the other foot LOL.

I called them for the first time yesterday on 20M SSB. About 5 minutes or so had them at 2316Z.
Another bites the dust while mobile in Texas.

I hope the crowd thins, and they get active night time for 40M.
